Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Ballet 422" is short, vigorous and charming. It's also purposefully superficial, holding a mirror up to the creative process rather than attempting to penetrate its mysteries. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Feb 5, 2015

Fresh: Jody Lee Lipes' delightful ballet documentary delves into the intricacies of the creative process. – Ronnie Scheib, Variety, Feb 4, 2015

Fresh: An intimate and unusual behind-the-scenes look at the creation of a ballet, it may sound rarefied but has enough moments of truth and beauty to engage general audiences. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Feb 13, 2015

Fresh: Ballet 422 is more visually sumptuous than most narratives you're likely to see this year, featuring careful compositions that make watching the film an aesthetic experience as much as an intellectual one. – Zachary Wigon, Village Voice, Feb 3, 2015
